Like it says on the tin (in using a well worn marketing slogan), I think there should be an option for 'miss-catagorised threads' flagging

The idea being that if someone inadvertantly put's say a thread about say the amiga in the ST forum or the c64 in the A8 forum (since the amiga and c64 now have a forum to themselves) then other users can use the option to flagging the moderators to having the thread moved or removed... as well as threads in the current events section that might be better places in say sports/entertainment or the death zone that is P&R (if anyone ever uses that anymore)

That's a good idea, although there is a "Report" button that allows you to specify the reason why you're reporting the thread. Simply putting, "This should be in the Amiga forum" would alert a moderator to move it to the appropriate place.

It would help if the forum software would show the old indicators again, now, you have to find a thread with a crappy indicator (compared to before) and it's no longer possible to see one of those on the main forum page. Posted Image

Wasn't too sure what that 'report' feature was all about....something else to look into
